Thrift - Scottish Wool Throw

It has been a rough two weeks fighting a rather nasty cold. Braved the thrift once but was forced to forego any estate sales. Found an Amor Kosta Boda heart vase (can't remember the designer at the moment) Swedish paper cut SOLD, vintage spun cotton picks from Japan SOLD and a large wool throw from Scotland.

If your interested in any items on my blog feel free to contact me thru my Etsy store MisterTrue

Thrift Fail - Culver Bar Glasses

Really loved these Culver gold bar glasses but the price was to high for me and I have a hell of a time selling them not to mention the utter hell of packing such fragile items for shipping.

Moms Estate Finds - Richard Lindh Planter

A few things my mom gathered for me. A letter file in orange, yum. Pair a Italian Christmas votives. A Dansk cheese board and a medium sized Arabia Finland planter by Richard Lindh. I have 4 or 5 of them now and should decide if I'll going to use them of sell them. Thanks mom!

Gift From Dublin - Erik Hoglund

Mom found this little Erik Hoglund ashtray for me in Dublin vintage shop. It still has its paper Boda Sweden label. You'll see it matches my Hoglund glass cat jar. It joins my pitiful Erik Hoglund collection of three (opps, forgot the two sets of candleholders). Thanks Mom!

Reference - Some People Really Like Pyrex

Thrift - Karl Hansen-Bahia Print

Thrifts seem to be picking up in other words they don't seem to be so sucky. Todays finds are an un-used Dansk carafe SOLD, a second Migraines Gary Larson mug and four vintage house tins (one no shown). A Swedish Dala that has had its face shaved off SOLD. Passed on the USSR era globe as it had a bit of sun fading and I detest packing them.

Paid a pretty penny for this woodblock print by Hansen Bahia but loved the colors but the plans are to hang it on a wall. The second appears to be a large painted illustration from the teens or 1920s that I have no info on?

Thrift - Hans Agne Jakobsson Fail

Picked up a few things today. Teak Dansk paddle board SOLD and a Danish teak board. Swiss Reuge music box of a Moulin Rouge CanCan Dancer on top of a second Reuge gold music box SOLD. Two Glasbake soup bowls (I'm always a sucker for these!) SOLD. A Town & Country Pyrex casserole dish with a minty lid.

And weeks later found the base to a Swedish Hans Agne Jakobsson glass lantern after I gave the top to BitofButter see below. I swear I looked high and low for the base. Damn it!

Thrift Score - Lagardo Tackett Jars

Look what I found! Three Lagardo Tackett kitchen jars. Would love to keep but sadly they have to be sold. On top them sits a wood Pinocchio.

Four mugs hee hee. Arabia Anemone bowl by Ulla Procope that was expensive but I think I'm selling it. And a trio of kitshy porcelain fawns made in Japan.

Some tourist prints and a Dansk Kobenstyle paella pan that I usually stay away from but this one was in excellent shape.
